    Well if you don't want it, I might be able to help you out
    It's a nice pipe. If it is as light as it looks, it should make a good clencher for a short smoke.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    I always thought of the Prince shape as something more suitable for a young person.
    Given Radice's reputation, and my experience with the brand, it should smoke well.

    as if I could kill time without injuring eternity. -- Thoreau

    Love that rustication. Reminiscent of Savinelli's Capri and Castello's Sea Rock.

    Nice pipe, sir. I had a similar Radice apple.

    It smoked so well that I used to call it my "Escudo-whisperer".

    I'm smoking a prince right now. That's a beautiful little pipe, should be a great clencher, and has nice balance and excellent finish. With flake/plug/coin/rope it will give a full-length smoke, and for loose tobacco, a great short smoke or sampling. So that's why you bought this pipe. It may well become one of your favorites. What's not to like? People rave about their Radice.

    Mso489, You're probably right ,this might suit well for those stronger dark flake and rope tobaccoes,can't find no flaws in this.

    I like Scottie Piersel's version, 7" with a pencil shank and a slight bend. But I like yours too.

    Prince is one of the perfect shapes. Our Dark Lord of Latakia Greg Pease has quite an impressive collection of unique Princes. Do NOT question The Siren Call Of The Pipe, submit to it !!!

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.
